Remembrance Day in Aylesbury 2017

November 12th, 2017|Events|

Remembrance Day in Aylesbury came around again. I made my way into the town center around 10am. People were already forming packs in preparation for the ceremony. It is, and always will be, a sombre day. Most of us will never know what was like and I pray we never will experience that level of [...]

The Red Bullets 10th Anniversary Celebration.

October 11th, 2017|music, Photography|

How I met The Red Bullets Every once in a while, I meet an extraordinary person who I respect and admire creatively, and in return that person feels the same way. Nine years ago I met a chap by the name of Pete Edwards. It was 2008 in a pub called the King's Head in [...]

Taking Family Photos

September 26th, 2017|Photography|

A few years ago I decided to stop taking family photos for creative reasons; I found the format was not challenging me as a photographer and creatively as an artist. Since then, I have matured in my craft. I have discovered what has been missing in my repertoire of creative expression, and that was simply [...]

Sigma 105mm Macro Lens

September 25th, 2017|Personal|

It was an unusually warm September Saturday where I invited a friend out to go on a photo walk; that's just a fancy name for photographers going on a nature walk. In particular, I taught her how to use the Sigma 105mm Macro lens which is a unique tool in my Canon collection. No other [...]

Aylesbury Photography Lessons 1-1

September 17th, 2017|Photography|

Photography Lessons don't have to be formal, or in a classroom Back in August I received a phone call from Rachel inquiring about photography lessons, but it wasn't for her personally, it was for her partner's birthday present. I am so glad I picked up the phone as that led me to a brilliant Saturday [...]

Lilly – A Yorkshire Terrier Photoshoot

September 15th, 2017|Photography|

When a friend tells me her beloved Yorkshire Terrier is getting old, I am compelled to frame their moment together to the best of my ability. So I booked them into my studio and spent an hour or so getting some shots done. These are my favourite photos from that session.

The Bon Jovi Experience Live in the Park, Aylesbury

August 27th, 2017|Events, music, Photography|

Headlining Aylesbury's Live in the Park 2017 was a tribute act called The Bon Jovi Experience. Allow me to say that I am a HUGE Bon Jovi fan, especially albums from the 80's through to the early 2000's. I mention this because I was a little skeptical about the Bon Jovi Experience; would they sing [...]

Callow Saints, Live in the Park Aylesbury

August 26th, 2017|music, Photography|

Many years ago, there was a stunning, powerfully visceral band called The Swamis. The 3 man band was incredible to watch and of course photograph. Ever since then I've not seen a band with such energy, until I saw Callow Saints tonight at Aylesbury's Live in the Park. To look at them separately they could [...]

The first Aylesbury Comic Con

August 6th, 2017|Photography|

When I first heard Aylesbury Comic Con was actually going to be an event I was excited; this was an opportunity to release my inner g33k. As it turns out, I am not geeky enough! Some folks like to criticize and mock Aylesbury, but if they really opened their eyes they would witness a community [...]

The love of my life.

July 30th, 2017|Photography|

The concept of L-O-V-E has always been an elusive concept to me. People say they "love" something everyday which often diminishes its meaning. The only ideal of love I can grasp is in the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13:3-7, you know.. the passage that starts with "Love is patient, love is kind..." Even though the idea [...]

Keeping the faith

July 9th, 2017|Family, Photography|

"...is about being tested over and over again" There is a wide misconception that being a Christian is a role about judging others, steeped in unrequested preaching and uncompromising religion. There is more than that though; being under the gaze of a deity is about being tested over and over again which brings me to this family.
